Linklaters sponsors the Hawa-Dembaya 2018 river race in Mali
We are delighted to have been able to sponsor Albatros Energy Mali and the Mayor of Hawa-Dembaya for the Hawa-Dembaya 2018 river race in Medine, Mali. The race is to fundraise for an ambulance for the Hawa-Dembaya region in Mali, and the drinking water master plan, allowing the remote villages in the region access to clean drinking water for the first time.
We have previously been working with Albatros Energy Mali in this region, on the structuring and financing of the first IPP project in Mali. The project consists of the construction, installation and operation of a thermal power plant with an installed capacity of 90.24 MW in Kayes, Mali.
These major projects illustrate both the progressive restoration and the significant efforts made by international institutions and the Malian authorities in order to foster the development of Mali.
